Ha ha not at all, you probably only had one or two "seeders" (people with the full shows on their computers and actively connected, uploading to you) and they probably weren't uploading very fast. Many people don't know they can use settings in the torrent program to increase/decrease the speeds at which they upload, or possibly they are uploading many different things at once and they have only a limited amount of bandwidth to go around. If you're curious about how fast your maximum download speed is you can go to speedtest.net and get a baseline download/upload rate for your service

Oh that's fun. Haven't done one of those speed tests for a while, and it looks like it's pretty much the same ... SLOWEST IN THE WORLD!

Well, not exactly, but my own test came out that way. The country itself is actually 5th from the bottom, right below Malawi. However, that's only cuz the "average" recorded must be from the super-zippiest and priciest providers, who serve people who are working at, like, the World Bank, and consequently putz away their days doing speed tests, I guess.

My own personal household Ordinary Person Web Provider comes out at .45 mbps, which is below the Congo, which is slowest in the world.

The US average is 15 Mbps. 34th in the world. Thailand is 10 Mbps. (55th, I think.) In contrast to our country average, which is 1.29 Mbps and 174th in the world. Take that, Tidewater, you spoiled beach bum in a fancy developed country.

I win! There is NO ONE SLOWER!

So if I ever get a show without many seeders, it will be next year before it arrives ...

Yes that's horrible, and of your pathetic .45 mb (I'm assuming download) you won't ever be using all that capacity for a torrent. Hey, B&P is always an option, and probably faster for you.
